Enter the Underworld

Entrance to the Underworld bw

descend into the earth

and find shelter within tangled mycelium

warmed by a blanket of fallen leaves and dirt

whilst earthworms coil amidst encapsulated

dreams of sunlight’s return


sleep in peaceful slumber

untouched by the Crone’s icy tears

by the crystalline frosts and bitter snowfalls

as she mourns her fallen consort and

awaits the turning wheel

    1. Thank you very much, Jeanne. 🙂 I really enjoyed writing this one – even though my internet kept cutting out. WordPress wouldn’t save the draft, and I lost the whole thing several times!
